- Waikato RISC Architecture Microprocessor
WRAMP (Waikato RISC Architecture Microprocessor) is a processor designed at the
University of Waikato, to aid in the teaching of Computer Systems and Assembly Language.
All instructions are based on 32 bit words and it only executes one instruction at a time.
The WRAMP Processor contains 16 registers. Register 0 is hard-coded to zero, and registers 1 up to 13 are general purpose registers. Register 14 is the stack pointer and Register 15 is the Return Address register.
WRAMP is mounted on a REX Board, which contains several input and output devices. These include a parallel port and two serial ports. Two seven-segment displays and eight switches, are just a few things that are attached to the parallel port.
